Two secondary localisation of non-Hodgkin's lymphomas in the upper gastrointestinal tract.

BMJ Case Rep 2022 May 18;15(5). Epub 2022 May 18.

Department of Medical Biotechnologies, University of Siena, Siena, Italy.

Extranodal non-Hodgkin's lymphomas of the gastrointestinal tract represent 30%-40% of all extranodal lymphomas. Gastric lymphomas are increasingly described in the literature due to the development of diagnostic techniques and the increased incidence, together with the reduced incidence of gastric solid neoplasms. Significant diagnostic difficulties are determined by the non-specificity of the symptoms, which are mostly chronic, characterised by a slow progression. Read More
